Removed E-revo A-arms, Driveshafts, Toelinks, Pushrods.
Replaced with the Original Slayer running gear.
Running Integy +6mm Offset hubs to fill the gap.
Added travel limiting to the shocks.
Custom mounted and Ofna GTP2e Front bumper.
Removed some of the front E-revo body tower so the Corvette body could sit down all the way.

Hi Monteman,
Are those wheels off the XO-1?
What size body will fit on the conversion and do you know any good places to get one?
thanks again.

Wheels in this pic are from the Kyosho GT2 car, the body is as well. it is the Corvette C6r from Kyosho, you can get it at amainhobbies.

The wheels on the truck in the pics of the race truck (associated SC8 body with some creative trimming) are SweepracingUSA treaded units.

so how did the erbe onroad compare to the ofna gtp ?
The erbe is 360mm wheelbase? I always thought it had the 325mm with the pf8 body but I guess you can make the pf8 into 360mm also becuase the erbe has the stance of a truggy compared to a buggy

The Ofna is definitely more refined as far as responsiveness etc, but it was designed as a road racer, but what i love about the ERBE-gt build is it seems to be willing to take a bit more punishment. When i go out i take em both with me. If the road or parking lot is quite dirty with rocks and such, i will race the ERBE-gt instead of the GTP2e.

ERBE is a 360mm wheelbase vs the 325mm GTP2e yes.

As you can see in the early pics i did make a PF8gt fit the ERBE just by trimming the rear holes back a far bit. Looks a bit goofy, but it works and i can still run the rear bumper, so i didnt complain a whole lot.

Im actually just getting the orders together to do the 360mm conversion on my GTP2e

Here is a side by side comparison.
